    Default test

    I took the test, was an easy test, It made the Newport test seem like a test for NASA (I was 28 on the list out of 430 @ Newport).

    Anyone hear anything about Cranston's results yet?

    I have my interview scheduled. A guy on Pawtucket I know told me that everyone with an 80 or better gets one. They are interviewing about 100 applicants. He said he could be wrong but that he heard it from a white hat. 100 interviews is nuts. I know they have at least 3 days of interviewing so it wouldnt surprise me if thats the case. Seems like more people passed the exam than they expected but they are sticking to the plans of interviewing everyone. Credit to Pawt. for undertaking that task, they arent avoiding any extra work, thats for sure.

So I got a letter for Pawtucket that sais I wasn't moving forward on their list and I was livid! I called the personnel dept. and found out that I got a 77 on the test. I asked what was the cut off and they said 79. I then went to my EMT calss that night and talked to 8 other guys who tookt he test and all of them got 77 or 78 on the test. What does that tell you??????????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ???

    It tells me that the $75 I wasted on it the thing was a farse and that they were hiring some LT.'s son's anyway, waste of time!!!

    Change your last name to Doyle, and see if that helps.

    Tells me your right answer wasnt their right answer. It wasnt a 2+2= 4 test. Think about how much of that test was really a personality profile. Keep your head up and stay positive.

    Nothing on Cranston yet. You sign up for Warwick? From the study guide they gave out it looks like its the same test Newport gave and with half the applicants. Could be right up your alley.


    Did you notice how similar the NK test was to Pawt? Same test without the memory and the personality questions. Maybe you fared better!

    Cranston's test was all right, they will have results soon, swim test is going to be during February school vacation. N.K.'s test was similar to Pawtucket's but I felt I did better on it.

    If they run two academys I would be in the second one with my list number. Basically, I wont be a Pawt. Firefighter lol. From what I hear those who are invited to the academy know it already and are in the process of taking the psych and the medical.
